Moss Covers a Men’s Mag for First Time in Seventeen Years; J. Aniston’s Got a Thing for Kale Chips; Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Stone on Aging; and More
The September covers are starting to leak, and while we weren’t surprised to hear that Kate Moss will be fronting yet another glossy (she was most recently the star of Allure‘s August issue), we never would’ve bet on the British edition of Esquire. Yesterday, the publication released several images of Moss (wearing nothing but a blazer and a sheer bodysuit with some strategically placed bedazzling), with a statement pointing out that “Moss hasn’t been photographed for the cover of a men’s magazine in seventeen years,” and is “still one of the sexiest, stylish, and alluring women on the planet.”
Jennifer Aniston, who has been busy promoting her upcoming movie We’re the Millers (out in early August), spoke with Access Hollywood about preparing for the scenes during which she wears nothing but lingerie (Aniston plays a stripper, so she knew what she was signing up for). Like anyone in her position, the 44-year-old actress put herself on a strict diet for the role. “I was on a very, like, you know—greens and vegetables and lean proteins and kale,” she said. “When I really wanted to have a cheat day, I had to have a kale chip.”
In other celeb beauty news, Jezebel did an interesting comparison of Kristin Scott Thomas’s and Sharon Stone’s different feelings about aging. The actresses are 53 and 55, respectively. Scott Thomas found herself considering plastic surgery after Cannes: “I saw lots of my contemporaries there this year, all looking so beautiful and gorgeous and healthy, and I just felt like an old ragbag next to them. I just thought, Maybe it’s time to do something about it, like a facelift.” Meanwhile, Stone was a bit more forgiving: “I have come close [to surgery]—but, frankly, I think that in the art of aging well there’s this sexuality to having those imperfections. It’s sensual,” she said. “[But] I don’t think there is anything wrong with cosmetic surgery at all. I think it’s great. But I don’t think it’s all right to distort yourself.”
Keeping things lighthearted (or light-headed, if you will), the Huffington Post called upon its readers to compile a list of “50 Things You Should Never Say to A Woman About Her Hair.” Highlights include: “Is that a weave?”; “What happened?”; and “It’ll grow out.”
Kate Moss Reveals Tanning Habits for Allure; Chloe Norgaard’s Rainbow-Hair Connection; Diptyque’s New Digs; and More
Kate Moss covers the August issue of Allure—her ninth cover for the magazine. In the article, the notoriously private supermodel open up about everything from her early insecurities regarding posing nude (“I used to be so scared about ‘Oh, I don’t want to show my body.’ Now that I’ve shown it, it doesn’t bug me about my moles, or ‘This isn’t big enough’ and ‘That’s not smooth enough.’”) to her well-documented tanning habits (“I don’t mind a bikini bottom. My husband likes lines on the bum—men like white bums, like a frame. I don’t do it on the boobs, though—I try not to have a white boob.”). Moss also broke down her daily beauty routine, saying, “I use that Moroccanoil stuff, and then I blow-dry [hair] upside down and brush it. Maybe I’ll give it a back-comb at the top.” And her cardinal hair-care rule? “Always clean hair. That’s a must. If in doubt, wash it.” Simple enough, right?
Chloe Norgaard has built a modeling career on her Technicolored tresses. In a video accompanying United Colors of Benetton’s Fall ’13 campaign, in which she stars alongside a slew of musicians and other fresh faces, the catwalker-cum-DJ discusses her first blue dye job in first grade: “My favorite color to have in my hair is rainbow. I can’t choose just one and love all colors except for brown.”
Diptyque disciples, rejoice: The cult French perfumer and candle purveyor announced that it will be opening its third New York store at 242 Mott Street in Nolita early next month. Bring on the eaux.
With this melt-your-face-off heat wave in New York showing no signs of letting up, we’ve been brushing up on warm-weather skincare. In addition to SPF protection, The Guardian advises: “Don’t even think about foundation, powder, and any elaborate makeup in this heat. Just apply sunblock, then a tinted moisturizer, and some concealer over any spots.” It also encourages switching to a waterproof mascara. In the same vein, BellaSugar’s roundup of blow-dryer-free hairstyles, including plenty of updated updos, was also helpful.
Well, that was fast. Not even a full month after debuting a red-carpet-stealing platinum-blonde dye job at this year’s Met Gala, Anne Hathaway is back to brunette. [NYDN]
Dita Von Teese does all of her own makeup, has been treating rosacea with the help of a dermatologist in Orange County for years, and stockpiles products from choice brands—as well as her own cosmetics range. So it shouldn’t be surprising that the burlesque queen had a little trouble selecting her top three beauty essentials during a recent interview. “Three? Oh my god, it’s more like 300! I have a lot of things that I absolutely can’t do without.” [Daily Mail]
The title of “Kate the Great” heretofore belongs to Ms. Middleton, not Ms. Moss. According to a new survey, the Duchess of Cambridge now beats out the super-est of them all when it comes to Britain’s most influential beauty icon. [Telegraph]
Mark another one for Kate Moss. The super-est of them all—who has hawked everything from Chanel and Saint Laurent to Topshop, Rimmel makeup, and her own fragrance line—has just inked a deal with St. Tropez to become the new face (and body) of the British skin-finishing company. Moss, a longtime client of St. Tropez global tanning expert Nichola Joss, has been using the line of self-tanners and bronzing products as an alternative to year-round sun exposure “since they started,” and is quick to point out that she always feels “more confident” with its special brand of faux glow. The Skin Cancer Foundation couldn’t have asked for a better start to its Thursday.

Lauren “Tiger Queen” Hutton shares, in a new interview with Net-a-Porter, that in the early days of Kate Moss’ career, she jumped to her defense. “Kate, whom I knew when she was 14, was always being made fun of by the other models. They were jealous, but I was the tiger queen, so I could crack the whip over them.” [HuffPo]
Jerry Hall talks beauty and style with her home state’s Houston Chronicle. A few notable likes and dislikes—”I like smoking, drinking, and coffee, but not too much…everything within moderation”; “I don’t exercise. I don’t like to waste energy on nothing”; “I like the B-movie-starlet look: skin-tight skirts, tight tops, a little bit naughty.” And her antiaging secret? Olive oil. “I give myself a thorough olive-oil soak every week…I just pour a bottle on me and stand around rubbing it in. It’s the best thing in the world for your skin, nails, eyelashes, everything.” [Houston Chronicle]
